Russian Aerospace Forces have carried out 141 sorties over the last 48 hours, striking 472 terrorist targets in Syria, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Gen.-Maj. Igor Konashenkov said Monday.

“Russian Aerospace Forces planes have completed 141 sorties and delivered 472 strikes against terrorist facilities in the provinces of Aleppo, Damascus, Idlib, Latakia, Hama, Homs, Raqqa, and Deir ez-Zor,” Konashenkov said.
According to Konashenkov, over the past two days the Russian warplanes have continued to actively engage in reconnaisance and to launch airstrikes at the specific targets of terorist groups operating in Syria.
After the combat mission all Russian planes have safely returned to the Hmeymim airbase.
Russia has been launching airstrikes against the IS on Assad’s request since September 30. A US-led international coalition has also been conducting an aerial campaign against the militants, but without approval of Damascus or the United Nations.
